Is your house overstuffed? If so, here are some simple and efficient home storage techniques you can use to create more space in your home. From the kitchen, the bathroom all the way to the basement, here are tips to help you put in use in these areas that are mostly overlooked.
Overall living space.
If you are struggling with limited space in your living room, you may want to consider hanging lamps to save on the space that would otherwise be occupied by side lamp tables. This will keep your home tidy, organized and free of clutter.
If your bedroom keeps getting smaller, you could try arranging scarves and ties on the inside of your wardrobe door to free up extra space in your room. You can add hooks to your bathroom door to hang towels and face towels too.
Instead of the common floor to ceiling cabinets, try the horizontal style. You can raise the floor by building in a storage platform to store bulky cumbersome items such as luggage out of sight.
What’s under your kitchen sink? This is one area that is mostly underutilised in most households. If used, you will most likely find items that were kept and forgotten. It is actually a no go zone in most homes! However, this space is very ideal if well arranged to store regularly used cleaning supplies, sponges, and bags.
It’s not surprising to find shoes scattered all over in most homes. They are just left lying on floors mostly near the entrance. Finding the right shoe can be a challenge when you need to rush out. How do you solve this menace? The simple best solution is getting a shoe rack or building a shoe organizer. This will help you keep shoes off the floor, leaving it clean. Also, these storage units are suitable for summer sandals and winter boots.
Spice rack in kitchens.
Some items in the kitchen such as salt, cooking oil and your favorite spices are regularly used in your home. The problem however is, it takes ages for you to timely locate them and most likely spices take up valuable counter space always. By arranging them in an easy to carry rack will save us valuable time and create enough space where other items can be placed.
The Message center.
Very often it’s common to find shopping lists, recipes and to-do notes scattered all over the counter space. You can use the inside of a cabinet door to mount a board fitted with various sections to place different notes. However, be sure to position it where it does not collide with the shelves of the cabinet.
Vacuum gear storage.
It is a common problem to find the vacuum cleaner in a corner and the vacuum cleaner attachments in a completely different spot. It’s good to have them together to avoid underfoot and easy retrieval. You can screw a hook to your closet storage door and hang a bag on it with all the parts inside.
Cloth storage solution.
The closet is always full no matter how hard we try to arrange it. A simple solution is using a lightweight small piece of chain and link them with hangers. On each chain loop, you can add additional hangers up to at least 3 hangers on a single chain. This will create and save you space in your wardrobe.
So, these were some home decor tips to make your house well organized and look stunning.
